today was the day to talk about green leafy vegetables…and the tax man is standing over my shoulder as we speak, sickle in hand, waiting, waiting. the little cartoon balloon over his head says
keep blogging little procrastinator. tomorrow at midnight i will reap you like summer wheat!
so the greens will have to wait a week!
however, since it’s so fresh and such a great example, and since it dovetails nicely with the power of procrastination, i have to make a few comments on the great #amazonfail of easter weekend.
then it was a clusterfuck: it’s amazon…no it’s the troll…no it’s the christian right…not it’s the glitch that stole christmas…no it was the french guy who pushed the wrong button…
is patience procrastination’s younger sister?
well the human desire for a neat tidy conclusion is alive and well online, obviously. and as usual, a bit of patience or procrastination would have been much more appropriate, unless of course you enjoy either:
- cruising about cyberspace with egg on your face, or
- watching all the cruising and cluster-fucking.
of course my favorite part was watching the civilians get into it with the professionals, especially whenever someone suddenly discovered the true story, which of course we will never know.
actually my favorite part of this was havi’s post, which used the controversy to wedge into a potent conversation of local vs. big box.
hold onto your conclusions
and your pitchforks! they might come in handy later. if only for making and turning a nice pile of compost!
